The Department is decreasing this fee in light of the expiration of the authority provided by the Emergency Afghan Allies Extension Act of 2014, which imposed a temporary $1 surcharge on the fees for Machine Readable Visa (MRV) and Border Crossing Card (BCC) application processing, to be deposited into the general fund of the Treasury. This provision required the Department of State to start collecting this surcharge on January 1, 2015, and it expired five and a half years after the first date on which the surcharge was collected, on June 30, 2020. The Department must reduce the reduced Border Crossing Card fee by $1, for a total fee of $15, to continue to collect the legislatively required fee amount of $13 and all remaining applicable surcharges.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background This final rule makes changes to the Schedule of Fees for Consular Services of the Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs. The Department sets and collects its fees based on the concept of full cost recovery, but some fees are set by statute. The Department of State is adjusting the reduced Border Crossing Card fee in light of the expiration of the authority provided by the Emergency Afghan Allies Extension Act of 2014, section 2, Public Law 113– 160 (‘‘the Act’’), which imposed a temporary $1 surcharge on fees for MRV and BCC application processing. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with RULES What is the authority for this action? The Department of State derives the general authority to set fees based on the cost of the consular services it provides, and to charge those fees, from the general user charges statute, 31 U.S.C. 9701. See, e.g., 31 U.S.C. 9701(b)(2)(A) (‘‘The head of each agency . . . may prescribe regulations establishing the charge for a service or thing of value provided by the agency . . . based on VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:05 Jun 14, 2021 Jkt 253001 . . . the costs to the government.’’). As implemented through Executive Order 10718 of June 27, 1957, 22 U.S.C. 4219 further authorizes the Department to establish fees to be charged for official services provided by U.S. embassies and consulates. Other authorities allow the Department to charge fees for consular services, but not to determine the amount of such fees, as the amount is statutorily determined. The Department of State is required by law to collect a Border Crossing Card application processing fee for a Mexican citizen under age 15 whose parent or guardian has or is applying for a border crossing card. Public Law 105–277, Div. A, Sec. 101(b), 112 Stat. 2681–50, 1681– 102. That fee is set by statute at $13. Additional statutes imposed surcharges that previously brought the fee to a total of $16. The Department is reducing the Border Crossing Card application processing fee for these Mexican citizen minors by $1 to $15 to reflect the expiration of the authority provided by the Act, which imposed a temporary $1 surcharge on fees for MRV and BCC application processing. Why is this BCC fee $15 instead of $13? In addition to the statutory $13 fee for BCCs for these Mexican citizen minors, Public Law 110–293, Title V, Sec. 501, 122 Stat. 2968, reproduced at 8 U.S.C. 1351 (note) requires the Secretary of State to collect a $2 surcharge (the ‘‘HIV/AIDS/TB/Malaria surcharge’’) on all MRVs and BCCs as part of the application processing fee; this surcharge must be deposited into the Treasury and goes to support programs to combat HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. Since the authority provided by the Act to collect an additional $1 surcharge on fees for MRV and BCC application processing expired on June 30, 2020, the Department has already administratively adjusted the reduced Border Crossing Card fee to reflect the expiration of this authority. This rulemaking adjusts the Schedule of Fees (22 CFR 22.1) accordingly. Regulatory Findings Administrative Procedure Act The Department is publishing this rule as a final rule, with an effective date less than 30 days from the date of publication, based on the ‘‘good cause’’ exceptions set forth at 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B) and 553(d)(3). The APA PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 31615 permits a final rule to become effective fewer than 30 days after the publication if the issuing agency finds good cause. 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). The Department finds that good cause exists to forego notice and comment and establish an early effective date for this rulemaking because the authority provided by the Act to collect a temporary $1 surcharge on fees for MRV and BCC application processing, expired on June 30, 2020, thereby eliminating any potential agency discretion with respect to this surcharge and rendering notice and comment unnecessary and impracticable. Regulatory Flexibility Act Since this rulemaking is exempt from notice and comment, the Regulatory Flexibility Act does not apply. However, the Department has nonetheless reviewed this rule and, by approving it, certifies that it will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities as defined in 5 U.S.C. 601(6). This rule decreases the Border Crossing Card application processing fee for certain Mexican citizen minors. Unfunded Mandates Act of 1995 This rule will not result in the expenditure by state, local, and tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100 million or more in any year, and it will not significantly or uniquely affect small governments. Therefore, no actions were deemed necessary under the provisions of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995, 2 U.S.C. 1501–1504. Congressional Review Act This rule is not a major rule as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2). Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 The Department has reviewed this rule to ensure its consistency with the regulatory philosophy and principles set forth in the Executive Orders. This rule is necessary in light of expiration of the authority provided by the Emergency Afghan Allies Extension Act of 2014, which imposed a temporary $1 surcharge on fees for MRV and BCC application processing. As a result, the reduced Border Crossing Card fee will be reduced by $1 from $16 to $15.

the Border Crossing Card fee paid by a Mexican citizen under age 15 
whose parent or guardian has or is applying for a border crossing card 
(the ``reduced Border Crossing Card fee''). The Department is 
decreasing this fee in light of the expiration of the authority

a total fee of $15, to continue to collect the legislatively required 
fee amount of $13 and all remaining applicable surcharges.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    This final rule makes changes to the Schedule of Fees for Consular 
Services of the Department of State's Bureau of Consular Affairs. The 
Department sets and collects its fees based on the concept of full cost 
recovery, but some fees are set by statute. The Department of State is 
adjusting the reduced Border Crossing Card fee in light of the 
expiration of the authority provided by the Emergency Afghan Allies 
Extension Act of 2014, section 2, Public Law 113-160 (``the Act''), 
which imposed a temporary $1 surcharge on fees for MRV and BCC 
application processing.

What is the authority for this action?

    The Department of State derives the general authority to set fees 
based on the cost of the consular services it provides, and to charge 
those fees, from the general user charges statute, 31 U.S.C. 9701. See, 
e.g., 31 U.S.C. 9701(b)(2)(A) (``The head of each agency . . . may 
prescribe regulations establishing the charge for a service or thing of 
value provided by the agency . . . based on . . . the costs to the 
government.''). As implemented through Executive Order 10718 of June 
27, 1957, 22 U.S.C. 4219 further authorizes the Department to establish 
fees to be charged for official services provided by U.S. embassies and 
consulates. Other authorities allow the Department to charge fees for 
consular services, but not to determine the amount of such fees, as the 
amount is statutorily determined.
    The Department of State is required by law to collect a Border 
Crossing Card application processing fee for a Mexican citizen under 
age 15 whose parent or guardian has or is applying for a border 
crossing card. Public Law 105-277, Div. A, Sec. 101(b), 112 Stat. 2681-
50, 1681-102. That fee is set by statute at $13. Additional statutes 
imposed surcharges that previously brought the fee to a total of $16. 
The Department is reducing the Border Crossing Card application 
processing fee for these Mexican citizen minors by $1 to $15 to reflect 
the expiration of the authority provided by the Act, which imposed a 
temporary $1 surcharge on fees for MRV and BCC application processing.

Why is this BCC fee $15 instead of $13?

    In addition to the statutory $13 fee for BCCs for these Mexican 
citizen minors, Public Law 110-293, Title V, Sec. 501, 122 Stat. 2968, 
reproduced at 8 U.S.C. 1351 (note) requires the Secretary of State to 
collect a $2 surcharge (the ``HIV/AIDS/TB/Malaria surcharge'') on all 
MRVs and BCCs as part of the application processing fee; this surcharge 
must be deposited into the Treasury and goes to support programs to 
combat HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria.
    Since the authority provided by the Act to collect an additional $1 
surcharge on fees for MRV and BCC application processing expired on 
June 30, 2020, the Department has already administratively adjusted the 
reduced Border Crossing Card fee to reflect the expiration of this 
authority. This rulemaking adjusts the Schedule of Fees (22 CFR 22.1) 
accordingly.

Regulatory Findings

Administrative Procedure Act
    The Department is publishing this rule as a final rule, with an 
effective date less than 30 days from the date of publication, based on 
the ``good cause'' exceptions set forth at 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B) and 
553(d)(3). The APA permits a final rule to become effective fewer than 
30 days after the publication if the issuing agency finds good cause. 5 
U.S.C. 553(d)(3).
    The Department finds that good cause exists to forego notice and 
comment and establish an early effective date for this rulemaking 
because the authority provided by the Act to collect a temporary $1 
surcharge on fees for MRV and BCC application processing, expired on 
June 30, 2020, thereby eliminating any potential agency discretion with 
respect to this surcharge and rendering notice and comment unnecessary 
and impracticable.
Regulatory Flexibility Act
    Since this rulemaking is exempt from notice and comment, the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act does not apply. However, the Department has 
nonetheless reviewed this rule and, by approving it, certifies that it 
will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities as defined in 5 U.S.C. 601(6). This rule decreases the 
Border Crossing Card application processing fee for certain Mexican 
citizen minors.
Unfunded Mandates Act of 1995
    This rule will not result in the expenditure by state, local, and 
tribal governments, in the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100 
million or more in any year, and it will not significantly or uniquely 
affect small governments. Therefore, no actions were deemed necessary 
under the provisions of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995, 2 
U.S.C. 1501-1504.
Congressional Review Act
    This rule is not a major rule as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).
Executive Orders 12866 and 13563
    The Department has reviewed this rule to ensure its consistency 
with the regulatory philosophy and principles set forth in the 
Executive Orders. This rule is necessary in light of expiration of the 
authority provided by the Emergency Afghan Allies Extension Act of 
2014, which imposed a temporary $1 surcharge on fees for MRV and BCC 
application processing. As a result, the reduced Border Crossing Card 
fee will be reduced by $1 from $16 to $15.
    Details of the fee changes are as follows:

    This regulation will not have substantial direct effects on the

not apply to this regulation.
